Police get green light to set speed cameras wherever they want

http://infowars.net/articles/may2007/180507cameras.htm

When are these fascist/revenue hungry authorities ever going to accept the proven fact that the vast majority of accidents occur at relatively low speeds, and are caused primarily by inattentive drivers who have only the most basic driving skills.

Re: Police get green light to set speed cameras wherever they want

Not good I have to cynically ask what the point is...if it's not about road safety?

I can also see an increase in the number of Specs cameras in future...they're not fun at all.

Exactly... It's all about road safety and the lack of driver education & training.

Re: Police get green light to set speed cameras wherever they want

we'll end up with MORE accidents as people spend more time watching their speedo & looking out for cameras, rather than actually looking where they're going

those 'orrible specs cameras are all over the place here now. i have to admit though that on one stretch of the m60 where it's down to a 40 limit for a few miles of roadworks, it has had a welcome side effect of keeping traffic flowing smoothly as everybody's doing the same speed there's no problem with stop-starting and bottlenecking

speed isn't the killer, bad driving is. the government already knows this as one of it's own surveys told them the facts. this new law just proves what we knew already - the official line that cameras are for safety not money making is complete and unashamed BULLSH1T

Another 'tax' on the motorist

It wouldn't be so bad but a lot of the roads I use have been reduced down from 60mph to 40mph for no apparrent reason

Re: Police get green light to set speed cameras wherever they want

Lets hope thae Gatso terrorist squad starts destroying all the camera's that are there just for money.

I have no problems with the ones in accident black spots though.
